Episode 65: The Addiction Inoculation: Raising Healthy Kids in a Culture of Dependance with Author Jessica Lahey

On this episode, I welcome New York Times Bestselling Author, Dr. Jessica Lahey to talk about her new book–

The Addiction Inoculation: Raising Healthy Kids in a Culture of Dependance.

We discuss the following (and so much more):

  • What a “culture of dependance means.”
  • When we should start speaking to children about substance use (Hint: It’s a lot earlier than you may think).
  • What role do genetics and environment play in addiction?
  • Do school-based prevention programs work?
  • What are some protective factors for substance use in children?
Tune in to hear me answer these questions.
